Crowned Heads has announced their first limited edition cigar. The
cigar will be a blend variation of the Four Kicks blend and will be
called “Four Kicks
Mule Kick Limited Edition 2012”. The story was first reported through Cigar Aficionado magazine.
The article mentions two differentiating factors to the Mule Kick. The first is that
the Mule Kick will use a darker version of Ecuadorian Habano wrapper
that is found on the original Four Kicks cigar. Secondly, there will also be some
additional ligero incorporated into the blend as well. The cigar will
be released in one size – a toro-sized 5 7/8 x 52 vitola. The cigars
will be packaged ten per a box and will have an SRP of $8.95. Like the
original Four Kicks and the new Headley Grange, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo
will be the blender for the Mule Kick.

November, 2011 with four vitolas. It has proven to be a very successful line. Since

(a 6 1/2 x 44 lonsdale) and the Robusto Extra (a 5 1/2 x 56 sized
vitola). The Robusto Extra was launched at the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show.
